M.E.T. Pile Encapsulation

Port of Rotterdam, The Netherlands

At the Maatschap Europoort Terminal (M.E.T.) in the 7th Petroleum harbour of Rotterdam, DUC Marine Group together with Henskens B.V. cleaned the piles on which the sea mooring is built and preserved them both above and below the waterline.

This was done using a company-developed robot jet. This robot is first suspended and then used to clean the piles (using a water jet) both above and below the waterline. A polyester jacket is then wrapped around the pile and sealed. From below, this jacket is flushed out and then injected with two-component epoxy resin.
